Making chocolate is easier if you start with unsweetened baker's chocolate (which is dairy free)
How did you try to make it?
Coconut oil and cocoa powder would work too- but you need a LOT of cocoa powder. Chocolate also requires some form of sugar and often salt to bring out the flavor. Many cocoa powders, however, are just bland- you have to start with the right cocoa. I suspect much of it is effectively stale.
As to Maltesers... it won't be an easy matter to make that fluffy core.
That's a matter of specialized equipment.
You may very well need to rig a vacuum chamber to fluff it in.
I'd try using a whipped cream charger on a mix of coconut oil (maybe 30%) and super-saturated melted malt.
Then transfer it into a home made vacuum chamber and inflate it (and cool it) as much as you can.
Something like what this guy is doing:
There are a lot of different configurations that can create a vacuum chamber.
I'm sure you can find instructables on that.
You'll probably have to spend $100 - $200 though, on building one.

I recently tried Jason's dark chocolate peanut butter cups, they were good. I usually go for Lindt 70% dark or Trader Joes dark. I tried making my own chocolate with coconut oil and cocoa powder before, it was rather bland.
Here is a list of some chocolates that may be more available in your area.

|mlee||Hi guys, lately I've been craving for my favorite chocolates - maltesers. I was wondering if there are any vegan chocolates that I can buy instead or vegan chocolate recipes that would taste like Maltesers that I can try at home? Thanks!|
